I don't think it's the "tease" necessarily, at least for me. I think it's more of the first set placement. Very rare. It made me think the boys were winging it and getting creative. 2 months later in shoreline those folks actually got a first set DS. Not epic but if you were there it must have been a hell of a night.

I was there, was at every Shoreline show from 89 on.....while i obviously remember the Dark Star, the show didnt really stand out......For me, Shoreline was almost always average for some reason. You better not be on the lawn at shoreline, because the sound sucked, and you were on a hill. There was only about a 20 foot difference between the First row of the Lawn and last row of the seats, but the difference in sound was huge...im a Cal Expo guy. My favorite Venue (killer Orange Slushies)

Note*- There was one Epic night at Shoreline that had Eyes, Fire, and Terrapin.Three huge GD anthems, all pre-drums(with Box and Sampson too).alot of people claim upon further review that the setlist name carries way more weight than its game, but i disagree, that was one of the best shows have seen

Dude while I also love Cal Expo you gotta remember the super sensational run they put together in the summer of 90 at Shoreline not to mention the summer solstice shows in the summer of 89 and if that don't do it for ya check out the JGB show that's out on video after Brents death that was well, shite just listen or watch just those and if your not convinced that some of the best later era shows were played at Shoreline well ....
Anyway back on subject I've got to say that my vote for best 90's Eyes goes to that mammoth 23+ minute one they played in the Fall of 91. I think it was the Halloween Bill Graham Memorial show but if you want to check for sure it appears as an extra at the end of Dicks Picks 17. I do believe they hit their stride with this song once again in 91 where it seems to show up everywhere and very well played at that.

the 23 minute one is the greensboro show 3-31 everyone has mentioned. You'll get no arguement from me on that

I agree on cal expo. Great place. i too was at many shoreline shows and had the horrible displeasure of being on top of the hill for 7/2/94. The unexpected Music>sugaree>music opener was tough to hear. as for 7/3, The Eyes>fire is very good. I just thought that first set was a big waste of time. Also, it was the first time since seeing the dead I could actually tell Garcia was using based on playing and vocals. I do love the 5Pm start times on Sunday though
